and the events in sandy hook was overwhelming. it was a slaughter of the innocence. the crucial turning point of what ought to be a dialogue in three areas and the assault weapons and the high capacity magazine clips should be what we will do about mental health care services for people in this nation. i applaud the vice president and the commission. it appears to be far reaching in scope and my hope is what they will recommend is that we do ban assault weapons and the high capacity clips and we take a look at the mental health services in our schools and professionals and providing greater access to mental health services. to take a look at the loopholes and also we ought to begin. i don't have specifics, but we ought to begin about what are the culturings that glorifies violence. >> he said it doesn't have to be all or nothing and we would rather do something than nothing. we have advocates who point to the same issues with violence and movies and the television industry and the video games. all of those are warranted of our attention and doesn't need to be all or nothing. that seems to be

seemed to suggest the killings at sandy hook elementary school four weeks ago tomorrow brought the nation to a turning point. >> there is nothing that has gone to the heart of the matter more than the visual image of little 6-year-old kids riddled, not shot with a stray bullet, but riddled, riddled with bullet holes. >> joining me now from new york, cnn, fareed, you and i haven't even talked since the shootings in sandy hook. 20 kids, six adults shot dead. we haven't spoken since the president declared these tragedies have to end. do you think that the vice president is right? has something changed because of this, keeping in mind we had debates before and nothing really happened. >> the country is clearly changing, brooke. i think sandy hook has been a huge turning point and there is a shift of consciousness. we are becoming more aware of just how a nomulous the u.s. is. we have 30,000 gun deaths a year and most countries have a few hundred. we have 10,000 gun homicides a year. england and wales have i think 35 or 40. we are beginning to realize that. the question is, will the political
continued to increase to push for relief on hurricane sandy. >> what specifically do you want your party in washington to learn? >> well, i mean first off, that something like sandy is and was above politics. >> according to a new national ppp poll, 51% of registered voters view governor chris christie favorably, 23% of them view him unfavorably. chris christie is actually more popular among democrats than republicans. 52% of democrats view him favorably, 23% unfavorably, just 40% of republicans view him favorably, 20% unfavorably. the governor is popular among independents. 18% unfavorably. today, the governor did not rule out a run for president. >> what are the prospects of that run? >> the call comes in 2016 you will be ready? >> listen, i will be more ready than i was in 2012. >> krystal ball, that is as much of an i'm running statement that you could make this far ahead of 2016? >> yes, i think that is right. obviously, about all the press he is embracing and being on the cover of "time," et cetera, that is not specific for him to win re-election in new jersey. you do notice after
's initiative. i think finely, after aurora last summer and now the terrible tragedy at sandy hook, finally people are realizing that the american public, the moms and dads of this country have to speak up. and i've been working on gun issues for 20 years. and i've never seen such a deep sense of outrage and a deep sense of commitment to doing something. >> that sense of outrage and that sense of commitment, does that also extend to your constituents and the coloradans that you talk to who are themselves gun owners, who may be hunters, may be sportsmen, people who see themselves as pro second amendment? >> oh, yes. you know, i'm a westerner. i come from a family of hunters. and we respect guns out here. we use them to hunt. but people who i've been talking to, they can't understand why you would need an assault rifle or why you need one of these assault magazines to go out hunting. i mean, a magazine that holds 30 or 100 rounds. you're not going to use that to shoot a deer. you're either going to use that for target practice or to shoot people. and frankly, the slight inconvenience to targe
with changes showers returning back to the forecast. >> catherine: nine weeks after super-storm sandy sent them fleeing. some of the people who live in the hardest hit parts of new jersey are being told they can go home again. this is video of one of the badly damaged neighborhoods.soon after the storm hit. even though some people are packing up and heading home.there are still vast stretches of nearby towns which are still deserted. >> the man arrested in the colorado movie theatre massacre was in court today. james holmes - looking very different from when he was taken into custody. he looked pale and thinner - with a beard and moustache. families of the victims heard emotional testimony today. including from a police officer who says he thought holmes was a fellow officer at first.that july evening. the officer broke down when he was describing how the floor of the movie theatre was wet with blood. holmes is charged with killing 12 people and wounding dozens of others. >> new information on the gunman in the connecticut grade school shooting. the new york post reports that adam lanza may not
to reduce what he called five days after the sandy hook shooting the -- quote -- "epidemic of gun violence that plagues this country every single day." although using such an executive order to do something is something he was not keen on during his first presidential campaign. >> i think that the issue of executive power and executive privilege is one that is subject to abuse. and in an obama presidency what you will see will be a sufficient respect for law and the coequal branches of government. >> jay sekulow from the american center for law and justice said last night there is no executive order the president canill override amendment to the constitution. meanwhile vice president biden has been meeting with outside groups on how to make recommendations to the president on how to make this happen. >>steve: where are the women? we know hillary rodham clinton was back at work yesterday. now she's leaving the cabinet. we found out one of the other few women on the cabinet, hilda so hr i -- hilda sol i s is heading out. she will be replaced by who knows. tim geithner is out. he'll be replac
'm assuming that you've been doubly impacted because you grew up just five minutes, ten minutes from sandy hook elementary school. so you know that area very well. you know the school. >> yeah. i know people who worked in that school. and who passed away. and so this -- i mean, this issue is obviously of great importance to me personally. i think it affects us all equally. whether we're personally shot or we know people who have been shot and effected by gun violence. if one person dies, we all have a problem. >> julian, mass murders tend to grab the headlines as you know. but we've been tracking the daily gun violence in this country. and just in the last 24 hours two women killed in front of a senior home in tamarac, florida. in chicago one man killed another seriously wounded outside a store. in dallas a marriage with a history of violence came to an end when a man shot and killed his wife we've seen increased public pressure in recent weeks, but can we hope to see that extend to real action? >> i think we can. and that is the $64,000 question here. as you have pointed out, not just the
, this is a campaign ad. >> 20 heartbroken families lost a child in the sandy hook school shooting. i know how much it hurts. my 9-year-old daughter was murdered in the tucson shooting. i have one question for our political leaders. when will you find the courage to stand up to the gun lobby? whose child has to die next? to every mother, we cannot wait. we have to demand a plan. go to demandaplan.org and add your name. >> mayors against illegal guns action fund is responsible for the content in this advertising, which have to demand a plan, concrete action. that message today from the mother of the youngest victim of the tucson mass shooting, which was two years ago today. this is kind of an amazing detail about this. that ad was scheduled to air today in tucson at precisely 10:10 local time, to coincide exactly with the exact time that the shooter in that incident opened fire two years ago. this is serious political pressure. this is not just about raising awareness or something, or seeking donations for groups that will work on this in a generic way. this is about using awareness and concern that
which was allowed to go away, you couldn't have had the clips that that young man took into the sandy hook school. it would not have been possible. that's a common-sense example. close all loopholes. every gun purchase has to have the same rigor attached to it regardless of where it occurs in our country. those are two things that would make a gigantic difference in the amount of violence that's taking place in our urban environments and yes, under these circumstances where somebody goes in and shoots up a movie theater or shoots up a school. let's take the steps that make the most sense today. i had a great conversation yesterday with vice president biden. and i know he is preparing his recommendations to the president. and i don't want to get into the details of the discussion, but he's got this down pretty well. he understands what we need to do to make it less likely that these things are going to happen in our cities and towns and these mass murders could be limited at least going into the future if some common-sense things are taken. the magazine thing is very big. >> wes. >> an

. if this is all part of the panel that president obama created following the sandy hook elementary shooting. new york mayor michael bloomberg, a strong supporter of tighter gun laws, is advising the vice president. >> secretary of state hillary clinton is expected to testify later this month on the deadly september 11th assault and libya. clinton has been scheduled to testify last month but she felt during an illness and she suffered a concussion. she was recently hospitalized for a blood clot. clinton returns to work on monday. she had promised to appear before the senate and house foreign affairs panel before stepping down from her job. president obama has nominated senator john kerry to replace her. >> we will be right back. [ mom ] dear chex cereal, i just had to write. you can't imagine how long i've been searching for something like this for my family. i'm amazed you make so many great flavors that are gluten free. my guys are crazy for chocolate chex and honey nut chex. for me, it's cinnamon. it means a lot to be able to give them something that's good for them, that also puts smiles on t

calls last june. similar problems cropped up when superstorm sandy hit in october. >>> and a closer look at the brain of the late nfl line baker junior seau and the ten-time all pro committed suicide in may. specialists who have studied him closely say that he has evidence of scarring and a condition called chronic traumatic enself lop tea e.ect. we'll have a live report from sanjay gupta. particularly when you're talking young kids and so forth, we've heard about the issue of concussion cans. >> sanjay has done a lot of research, a lot of work on these concussions, these head injuries from football. it's a serious, serious subject. >> that's reason enough to tune in and continue to stay tuned in. >> it was such a tragic loss. i remember the day upon hearing the news of his suicide. really, really sad. >> all right. thank you. >>> we're just about to get a close look at assault weapons. they are likely to become the targets of proposed gun control laws again. but, first, what's wrong with this picture? our strategy session is looking at whether the president needs to recruit more women a
